Deciding when to take action.
There is a right and wrong time to make decisions and take action on them.
Here’s the not so good time:
When we are stressed
When our mind is running like crazy
When we feel like there’s not enough time in the day to do everything we need to
When we aren’t enjoying what we’re doing
When we’re tired
When we’re angry or frustrated
Here’s the perfect time:
When you’re centered
When life feels like its worth living
When you’re flooded with amazing ideas of things you want to do
When your mind is still
When the thought of an outcome brings a smile to your face
When you feel loved
When you feel light and joyous
When you feel ambitious
Making sure we wait until we are in a good place to make decisions will help your life flow so much more smoothly. The feeling of regretting a past decision or fretting over whether or not you made the right decision is no longer an issue.
You will be confident you made the right choice and this right choice opens life up and allows us to live more in the present.
How to get yourself in the right mindset / the perfect time:
Do what brings you peace.
What gives you a clear mind?
Here are some of my own personal things I do to clear my head and de-stress when life gets crazy.
I go to the beach and either run and stretch, or sit and meditate. Or both.
I do yoga. (meditation)
Clearing the mind of unnecessary thoughts.
Sometimes this is a solo activity. Sometimes I need communication and connection.
Find what works for YOU in your current moment.
We seem to have come to a place where when someones asks us a question, needs a favor, or a decision needs to be made we feel we have to respond right away. We don’t!
It is perfectly okay, and even better if we take the time we feel we need to respond. Not only will this make you feel more in control and end in a better result, others will appreciate our willingness to take time to make the right choice. Trust and respect will grow. In yourself, and from others.
I hope this finds you on a day when you are needing it the most.
All my best,
